Miscellaneous Grab-Bag

In no particular order, here are today's fun linx:

Saul Rubinek (pictured above) is a Jewish actor who was born in a German refugee camp in WWII. First saw him in Unforgiven as the erstwhile biographer of the Duke of Death (Duck, I says). Recently saw him in The Quarrel, where he plays a Holocaust survivor who becomes a Rosh Yeshiva in Montreal. However, my favorite role of his would have to be the big-shot Hollywood producer/coke fiend in True Romance, where, in response to a fellow motorist who flicks him the bird, he shouts, "Don't give *me* the finger! I'll fucking have you killed!!!"

• Y'all heard about the largest wireless cloud in all of history? It's in Oregon of all places! (hat-tip to Yehoshua, who, for the record, I think should start a blog called "The Shiboles Nerd")

This is a kooky site devoted to other people's conversations in New York City. While there is no way that they could verify contributions to their site, it all still seems pretty true-to-life, and pretty darn funny. (hat-tip to Jewschool)

• Another Jewschool hat-tip: Are you a Jewish artist/teacher? If so, check out this opportunity now.

• Last but not least: my holy father Reuven's site (under construction) where he showcases his coin collection, his knowledge of American history and numismatics, as advertised in the December issue of Coin World Magazine!!!

Some of the stuff on Overheard is hilarious. Where's the J-luv love on the coin site?
